High Elevation Self-Rescue System-101SR


The Buckingham 101SR provides all the components required to self-rescue or if the need arises to rescue a fellow employee. The 101SR descender will automatically stop the user until the user compresses the handle allowing a smooth controlled descent. An additional built-in (anti-panic) safety feature stops descent if the user compresses the handle too hard. This unit will allow the rescuer the advantage of lowering a hurt person with ease as well. The 101SR kit comes with retrofit rappelling straps that can be added to an existing harness for self-rescue.
